I have OS X Lion, up-to-date with patches, on a 32-bit Mac Pro. It installs fine, but does not launch.

Does anyone know what the problem is?

Thanks.

There is no such thing as "a 32-bit Mac Pro" - the Mac Pro was the last Mac to switch to Intel, and that happened after Apple switched from the 32-bit Intel Core processors to the 64-bit Intel Core 2 processors. (And, in any case, Lion doesn't support 32-bit processors, at least not without some hacking.)

Did you install the 32-bit Intel version of Wireshark, as built for and on Leopard? If so, what happens if you install the 64-bit Intel version?
